  19. My kids love Curious George! Their favorite part of the first movie is when Ivan goes up the elevator saying “I smell pet” and then No they laugh so hard it makes me laugh.

    I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of the 2nd movie.

  20. my son likes Curious George… I think because George is not perfect and is always doing something to make a mess and figures out how to make it better and my son can relate to that.

  21. I think my son loves Curious George because it makes him feel better about being so curious himself… he knows that he’s not the only one that finds himself in troublesome situations; but also knows that you can also “fix” them.

  22. Whenever I think of Curious George, I think of the story where he swallows the puzzle piece, goes to the hospital and meets the little girl. Thanks for the review and giveaway!
